White House comes to 'U' to iron out service plan


The White House is coming to town.
The University will welcome the Office of
National Service Monday to discuss and draft
regulations to implement the National and
Community Service Act of 1993.
Bringing together a group of White House
policy-makers, educators, students, commu-
nity service leaders and financial aid officers,
the "working session" - scheduled from 1.1
a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Oxford Conference Cen-
*r - will address how to make community
service available to students still in college.

Barry Checkoway, a School of Social Work
professor and chair of the University's Task
Force on National and Community Service,
said the White House requested less than a
week ago to hold a "think-tank" meeting at
the University.
"This is a noteworthy thing," Checkoway
said. "A piece of the program that has not been
addressed will focus on potentially the mil-
lions of college students who could do com-
munity service while they are in college and
get tuition benefits."
"It's been a real busy week," he said.
With the act set to take effect Jan. 1, the

Clinton administration wants to have regula-
tions in place by November.
The University was chosen to host the
meeting because of its significant contribu-
tion to shaping the plan.
Walter Harrison, one of the founders of
the task force and vice president for Univer-
sity relations, said he was delighted that the
University had been chosen to host the meet-
"I think that this is a real credit to the
University. It shows that the University is
playing a crucial role in the development of
national service," he said.

Also facilitating Monday's meeting is
Goodwyn Liu, White House director of higher
education for the Corporation on National
and Community Service. He will be joined by
two other policy-makers from the Office of
National Service - Susan Stroud and Marsha
At least five University students who work
on the task force have been invited to attend
the meeting.
Adrianna Kezar, an aide in the University
student affairs office and doctoral student in
Education, was responsible for drawing up a
list of attendees. She submitted the list to the

White House for approval and then photocop-
ied thousands of pages of legislation and
information to send to working group mem-
Many other members of the office have
worked on the event this week, Kezar said.
Additionally, the White House agreed to
collaborate on a University symposium on the
topic of community service and national ser-
vice learning, Checkoway said.
The event, tentatively scheduled for Feb-
ruary, will focus on how the University can
lead other schools in effectively implement-
ing national service programs.

reform, nurses are optimistic about.

"The Clinton plan, though not per-
fect, is the best opportunity to better

0xecutive director of the Michigan
Nursing Association.
Franck was one of three panelists
at a discussion last night sponsored
by Sigma Theta Tau, an organization
of nurses. The panel -- which also
included State Sen. Lana Pollack (D-
Ann Arbor) and Marianne Udow, a
senior vice president at Blue Cross/
Blue Shield - addressed the oppor-

Under the plan, nurses would play
a larger role in providing care. Medi-
cal education would be revamped to
turn out many more primary care doc-
tors, which would increase the need
for advanced nurse practitioners and
physicians' assistants.

Carol Franck, executive director of Michigan's Nursing Association, State Sen. Lana Pollock (D-Ann Arbor) and Marianne Udow, senior vice president of
planning and development services of Blue Cross Blue Shield, field questions at the health care panel discussion at the Sheraton Inn last night.

Franck said the system needs to be
changed to emphasize prevention and
care, rather than illness and cure and
to address the "inequities that nurses
see every day."
Pollack also told participants she
supports the plan, but with some seri-
ous reservations.
She said the plan is designed to
reduce malpractice suits, fraud and
paperwork, "which should be good

for professionals."
However, Pollack was critical of
Clinton's idea of "managed competi-
tion" because she said it has not low-
ered costs in the past.
Furthermore, she added that the
plan's aim to cut waste in Medicare
and Medicaid may be unrealistic be-
cause they are already more efficient
than private care, with 10 percent
